Former president and CEO Albert Lauwers was Ross Memorial Hospital’s top-earning employee last year, according to the public sector salary disclosure.
The Lindsay hospital released its list — the so-called Sunshine List — on Thursday afternoon.
Under the Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act, organizations that receive provincial funding must publish a list of individuals who are paid $100,000 or more.
Lauwers earned $280,142.85 with taxable benefits of $2,524.08 in 2018. He stepped down as president and CEO at the end of February to accept a new role as executive vice-president of medical and clinical programs at the Scarborough Health Network on April 1.
Rounding out the top three salaries were registered nurse Mary Ellen Schellenberg who earned $188,545.69 and Bruce Pye, shared regional chief information officer, who made $172,461.79
